oa Civil Engineer in South Africa - Evaluation of sites for on-site sanitation systems : technical note

 

Abstract

In 1982 the National Building Research Institute (NBRI) of the CSIR embarked on a project to investigate the provision of appropriate technology engineering services for low-cost housing. Up to then very little research into site criteria for on-site sanitation systems other than septic tank systems had been done anywhere. However, engineers often need such criteria. The specific site criteria proposed in this article should be applied with caution, as they are intended only as an indication of the suitability of the terrain for on-site sanitation systems.

Die NBNI van die WNNR het in 1982 begin met 'n projek wat dit ten doel gehad het om ondersoek in te stel na die voorsiening van toepaslike tegnologie-ingenieursdienste vir lae-inkomste behuising. Tot dan toe was daar baie min navorsing wêreldwyd gedoen oor grondvereistes ten opsigte van op-erf sanitasiedienste anders as septiese tenkstelsels. Die spesifieke terreinvereistes wat in hierdie artikel voorgestel word, moet met versigtigheid toegepas word omdat dit slegs 'n aanduiding gee van die moontlike geskiktheid van die terrein vir op-erf sanitasiedienste.
